Isakson Statement on Tax Reform

Welcomes commitment to middle-class tax relief, jobs and competitiveness

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance with jurisdiction over tax reform, today released the following statement regarding the tax reform framework released by leaders in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Trump administration:

“Today’s announcement is the result of years of work by our committee to overhaul the U.S. tax code and provide meaningful tax relief for middle-class Americans while boosting our economy,” said Isakson. “Our competitiveness as a nation is at stake. By simplifying our broken tax code and leveling the playing field, we can help strengthen America’s standing in the global marketplace, increase domestic economic growth, create more jobs with higher wages, and provide tax relief for hardworking Georgians.”

“I also appreciate the commitment by Congressional leaders and the president to move this important measure through the regular legislative process, which improves transparency and leads to a better final product,” Isakson continued. “I look forward to taking an active role in this overhaul as members of Congress and the administration work together to enact comprehensive tax reform for the good of our nation.”

Isakson plans to join U.S. Senate and U.S. House leaders later today at an event in the U.S. Capitol to mark the release of a unified framework for comprehensive tax reform.
